Mariah Carey's New Year fail

03rd January 2017, 12:00 Hrs

Mariah Carey had a very embarrassing start to 2017 when her performance on America's Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve 2017 show was hit with technical troubles. The singer who was lip-syncing to her opening song, Auld Lang Syne, lost her way while singing her own hits Emotion and We Belong Together thanks to backing tape issues. “Well, Happy New Year! We can’t hear!” Mariah said, trying to make the best of a bad situation as she attempted to sing Emotion. "We didn’t have a (sound)check for this song, so we’ll just say it went to number one... Let the audience sing... Put these monitors on please!" Mariah eventually gave up singing and just danced along to her songs.
